The new rural Peter Märkli in Nikola-Lenivets
Nikola-Lenivets Classroom is pleased to announce that Swiss architect Peter Märkli will visit Nikola- Lenivets Art Park this October in order to develop a large-scale landscape project for the park which will transform visitor experience.
Peter Märkli is admired worldwide for the otherworldly and poetic quality of his architecture. He has built extensively in the private and public sectors, but has not yet completed a project in Russia. He has collaborated with artists extensively and has a deep professional interest in the relationship between landscape and architecture.

This is Peter Märkli's second visit to the Nikola-Lenivets Art Park, during which he will develop a more detailed landscape project, which is set to significantly transform the spacial organisation of the largest open air museum of site-specific art in Europe.

Peter Märkli's visit is part of the Nikola-Lenivets Classroom 'New Rural' season of education and ideas- exchange events. Peter will be assisted by a select group of young Russian architects, who will help produce drawings, site maps and prototypes needed to complete the project in 2019-2020.

Nikola-Lenivets Classroom is also collaborating with Moscow Architecture School to host a public lecture by Peter Märkli in Moscow on the 22 October.
